    @Toni I love Stephen king films, so will have to give his books a go! Sounds interesting :) but me being me will have to buy the whole of the, the dark tower series :lol: 

    I have so many fav books :lol:  but if I had to pick one it would probably be The lovely bones, it's sad but so beautifully written <3
    Ahh The Lovely Bones is so sad! Excellent book.

    There’s this new one that has come up on amazon called “the spectrum girls survival guide : growing up autistic and awesome” has anyone read this one and is it with getting ? I’m looking at getting it as I think could be really good for me but don’t want to spend £13 if it’s rubbish 😅
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    So I just finished Station Eleven which is an excellent book, but not one I'd recommend reading right now, as it's about a pandemic. I'm not largely affected by what's going on mentally, and even I mulled over it before bed. So bank this one and come back to it as a recommendation.

    Next month sees the release of a film called Dune. It’s going to be a huge and spectacular sci fi film.

    I recommend reading the book it’s adapted from: Frank Herberts - Dune.

    It remains one of the top 5 books I’ve ever read. It’s not an easy read but it’s worth it. And if you like sci fi it’s required reading :)

    At the minute, I am re-reading It's Kind of a Funny Story because this was one of the first books that really allowed me to feel valid in my mental health difficulties as a teenager. Sometimes these books that explore different perspectives on mental health needs can be really insightful =)

    I have finished reading the new Sally Rooney book and maybe it's because I'm young but I love her writing! It's so simple yet informative and appealing.
